    Grrr What am I doing wrong? 95% of the Adventureland video was shot with the GoPro. It's terrible. The gimble wasn't allowed, because it was considered a selfie stick. I was moving as smoothly as possible.

    • quadrunner91
      quadrunner91 9 days ago

      Well, "Hyper-smooth" isn't perfect. I took a look at your video, nothing in the first few minutes seemed abnormal to me. There was a shot of a row of candy that looked very soft. I'm not sure if that was intentional or not.

    Can we adjust the WB manually? For shooting indoors. I shoot in schools and industrial situations. Light can be funky...

    Does the waterproofing stays intact when changing the lens filter to ND filter?

    • huskyf0x
      huskyf0x 25 days ago +1

      the camera stays waterproof even without the lens. The outside lens is just protection to the actual lens.

    Just got one of these from work and for the money, not a chance I'd pay out of my own pocket for one. With all the accessories they paid over £700 for mine, £700!!! That's just silly!

    What about overheating, freezes (software freezes of course) and sometimes it don't want to switch off...
    This was my worst gadget purchase in my 35 years!
    Why GoPro fix all that software glitches and send us software update?! Yeah, I already know the answer - the don't care for users!

    This equipment is much to expensive! There are so much accessoires for the gopro for under 15$!
    A gopro Powerbank? Realy? You can use every powerbank für this! And for 99$ is this a effrontery!

    Good information. Why do people think expecially is a word?

    • Boat Lover
      Boat Lover 2 months ago

      @Air Photography No offense intended, many people now use the word the same way. I do think there is a fine line between slang (home boy, baby momma, popo, etc...) and mispronouncing a word. I think a great many people really no longer know how to pronounce that word because of this common usage. Others really don't know the reason for the usage by an individual when they hear it, on purpose or don't know better. Again, enjoyed the video, thinking about buying one of those cameras. Just spent a month in New Zealand and wish I had the camera and your advise. Again, not trying to disparage you! Look forward to more videos.

      Good point, I’ll make sure to include that in my next tips video when the hero 8 comes out. You can access your recorded media from swiping up from the bottom. From there you can view photos or play back video

      What is your complaint? Most people are quite pleased with their Hero 7 Black. I am curious what issues you have had with it.
